Best Pest Control Can Get Rid of Rats and More

Happy Rat Catcher's Day!  Believe it or not, this really is a holiday, and it is one that definitely got the attention of the best pest control company of the Lake of the Ozarks.  Rat Catcher's Day is intended to commemorate the famous myth of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.  Like many fairy tales, this was based on real events, but of course over time and re-telling, took on a life of its own.  




The actual date depends on whether you follow the Grimm Brothers story putting it on July 26 or the poem by Robert Browning placing in on July 22.  Basically, there was a rat infestation and the townspeople of Hamelin, Germany hired the Pied Piper to get rid of the mice with his magic, musical flute.  He did, but the town wouldn't pay him, so he lured away the children as a punishment for the town.

Best Pest Control has much better techniques than the old piper in the tale.  (And we would never lure away your children.  Did you ever notice how old fairy tales usually have something creepy in them like that?  Yikes!)  

Rats are responsible for transmitting many nasty diseases.  They do their best to be secretive, so you may only see signs that they are present.  These could include, droppings, dirt or grease marks along the walls and floorboards, sounds in the walls, and evidence that something has been gnawing on plastic or wood items around the house. Rats' front teeth grow their entire lives, so they gnaw on things to keep these teeth worn down. Also, if your pet tends to stare blankly at the wall, that could mean that something is in there that shouldn't be.    


    

Our expert team is trained to rid your home of all types of pests, both large and small.  We are the best animal control company at the Lake of the Ozarks, taking care of your problems with rats, mice, raccoon, opossums, and more.  If you believe that rats or any other type of pest are present in your home, give us a call. We would be happy to come out talk to you about the best options for treating the problem.

Rainy Days May Have Forced Ants Into Your Home

We are finally enjoying some beautiful Summer days in this area, but a few weeks ago the constant rains may have forced ants to look for a dry spot inside your home.  While they do look for water to survive, heavy rains flood their undreground homes causing them to seek shelter in yours.  Ant Control at the Lake of the Ozarks is one of the specialties of Best Pest Control.   



These pesky little creatures are very difficult to get rid of once they decide to set up camp.  Best Pest Control would like to clue you in on some reasons that you should seek out a Lake of the Ozarks professional exterminator if this happens to you.

There are more than you think.
You may only see a few ants wandering around your kitchen, but those won't be the only ones on property.  Only a small portion of an ant colony is sent out for food at a time.  Even though you think you killed those ten that you saw, there may be hundreds more waiting for their turn to venture out.

They are never satisfied.
Ants are constantly looking for food.  There can be a large pile of food for the taking sitting right in the middle of your floor, and while part of the group slowly picks that apart, others will head off to another area looking for more.  This means that it won't be long before they are everywhere.

They are persistent.
The work ethic of an ant is actually quite impressive.  They are constantly going, going, going, and if an obstacle gets in their way, they will keep moving until they find a way around it.  Sometimes trying to treat for them yourself can backfire. You may block one area from them, but it could just push them into more areas when they try to avoid the original one.



At Best Pest Control, our staff is professionally trained to take care of ants once and for all.  Our trained technicians know exactly what to do to get those ants under control and out of your way.  The goal for us has always been to exceed the expectations of our clients, so you can be sure that we will take care of your ant problem.  We offer free estimates, so give us a call today so that we can get started before any more of those annoying little pests show up.

6 Summer Pests To Keep At Bay


Summer seems to wake us all up and get us out and about.  Sadly, bugs feel the same way about this season. Having a pest control expert visit your home regularly is always wise, but especially necessary in the Summer. Taking measures to keep all of these pests away before they actually show up can make it a lot easier to control them when they are around in large numbers.  


Best Pest Control can take care of all of your Lake of the Ozarks pest control needs.  Here are a few of the annoying bugs that could give you extra trouble during these warm months.  


Mosquitoes

These annoying creatures start up in the Spring and don't go away until after the first freeze right before consistently cold weather. They especially love any type of standing water, so bird baths, over watered plants, and even pet's water dishes need to be changed regularly to help keep mosquitoes at bay. 


Ants

Ants hibernate all winter, so when they wake up in the Spring they are extremely hungry. They immediately begin their search for food and water, and will eat nearly anything from grease on the stove to bits of sugar dropped from your morning coffee cup. Once an ant finds something tasty, he brings along the rest of his colony to pick up the scraps. They especially love kitchens because of the food, but they also favor bathrooms because there is plenty of water in there for them. If you have pets, their food dishes are also tempting for ants. 




Flies

It is so very nice when the weather warms up and we can get outside more and leave our windows open. Unfortunately, flies love it when our doors and windows are open too. They reproduce only in warmer months, lending to the increase in their population. They will mostly be found hanging out around your trash cans and any food items that are left out.

Fruit Flies

These are usually tinier than regular house flies. Fruit Flies are attracted to sugary, organic materials. While they are very often found around fruit, they can also be attracted to meat, trash bins, and large spills of sugary liquids. Summer brings along with it lots of fresh fruits, and people love to leave these out in bowls on kitchen counters and tabletops. If the fruit is there for an extended period of time, these little guys will most likely be moving in.

Ticks

We see a lot of ticks in the Summer because we are generally outdoors more when the weather is warm. They cannot fly or jump, so you will only have one attach to you if it crawls on to you or drops from above. Always be sure to give yourself a good once-over after being outside so that you can remove them as soon as possible.

Fleas

Warmth and humidity in the Summer speeds up a flea's life cycle, meaning lots more fleas. If you do not treat your pets regularly in the Summer, eggs may drop off of their fur when the walk through your home. Once these hatch, you could quickly and easily become infested. Once that happens, it takes a lot of time and effort to get rid of them.     



Planning ahead is a great way to keep these pests under control.  Our experienced technicians at Best Pest Control at the Lake of the Ozarks know exactly what to do to make these creatures want to keep away from your home.  Give us a call and let us tell you all about what we can do for you.

5 Ways To Keep Mosquitoes Away From Your Yard



The Summer weather makes people want to be out in their yard, but unfortunately, the mosquitoes want to be there too.  Best Pest Control knows a few tricks and tips that can help to keep these annoying bugs from spoiling your outdoor fun.  





1.  Light citronella candles

Mosquitioes hate the smell of citronella oil, making these candles a wonderfully effective way to keep them at bay.  A few placed strategically around your yard and picnic area should reduce the amount of mosquitoes nipping at you and your guests.


2. Use lavender oil

The scent of lavender is another one that mosquitoes cannot stand, but most humans enjoy the fragrance.  Using a lavender essential oil in a body lotion or oil will make you smell good and help to repel the bugs.


3.  Grow plants that mosquitoes hate

There are quite a few plants that can be grown around your yard or patio that naturally repel these pests.  A few of these are:  lemongrass, citronella, catnip, geraniums, marigolds, lavender, rosemary, garlic, and peppermint.  



4. Turn on a fan

Mosquitoes are not strong flyers, so placing a fan somewhere near where you are can keep them away.  Even on low, the airflow from the fan will not allow them to fly close enough to bother the area around it.  A really great place to have one is near the food for your picnic or barbecue.


5. Remove standing water

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water.  Be sure to empty any containers that have collected rain after a big storm.  If you have a bird bath, change the water weekly.  Pet dishes are also something to keep an eye on.



These things should help to keep the mosquito population around your home at a minimum.  If you are experiencing a problem that seems to be out of control, be sure to give the best pest control company at the Lake of the Ozarks a call.  Best Pest Control can come out and take care of all kinds of pests and animals that are troubling you.  Try a few of these tricks, and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible this Summer.
